Welcome to New York State Psychological Association!


NYSPA's 2019 Lobby Day

Please join us for a day of advocacy, education, and civics!

May 6th and May 7th, 2019

Register early to reserve your spot for this Lobby Day. We are limiting participants to 30 this year.

This program is key to our work because we feel that a face to face meeting is the most effective way to communicate with the legislators. In addition, it allows us to incorporate our members into our work and further educates legislators on our positions on issues. Plus, it can be a lot of fun! Whether you are an experienced advocate or brand new to the legislative process, this program can help make your visits easy and effective. Come down to the Capitol and meet your legislators. NYSPA staff and lobbyists will prepare you for all of your meetings with legislators and equip you with a toolkit of information, position papers, talking points and packets for your meetings.
